Life will constantly teach us lessons if we pay attention; God weaves His wisdom into every aspect of creation. Proverbs instructs us: “Go to the ant, O lazy one; observe her ways and be wise.” Like ripe fruit dangling on a low hanging limb, knowledge and understanding are easily within reach. However, excuses come easier than actions. And while failure is painful, it is also convenient. So we make excuses: “If only I had…(fill in the blank— good looks, fame, a better boss, more money, etc.), then I could succeed.” Frankly, what we posses makes little difference, but what possesses us makes all the difference. Desire and passion outweigh fame and fortune. LORD, I am Yours. Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me for Your Glory.
